BOXX Announces Support For Dual-Core AMD Opteron™ Processor Technology
Austin, TX --
BOXX Technologies, the leading workstation company offering systems that are as powerful as they are easy to integrate, announces its plans to support dual-core AMD64 technology in its 7000 Series of high-performance workstations and render nodes. Featuring Dual-Core AMD Opteron™ processors, dual-core AMD64 technology is a natural extension of AMD’s Direct Connect Architecture, directly connecting CPU, memory and I/O resources as opposed to having these resources accessed via a front-side bus.
“BOXX is pleased to be supporting dual-core AMD64 technology in its 7000 Series of workstations and render nodes,” says Reese Gautschi, director of marketing, BOXX Technologies. “By adding dual processing engines on a single piece of silicon, Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors will provide BOXX customers outstanding performance and shorter rendering times for visual computing applications that support multi-threading and multi-tasking. Further to BOXX’s customer-focused initiatives, dual-core AMD technology is expected to run significantly cooler and quieter than competing processors which is a benefit to every customer, delivering better investment protection and a better overall user experience.”
”BOXX Technologies’ high-end workstations operating in compute-intensive environments will soon tap into the multi-threading, multi-tasking benefits afforded by the new Dual-Core AMD Opteron processors with Direct Connect Architecture,” said Pat Patla, director, Server/Workstation Marketing, AMD. “Because the processors can better allocate tasks among the two cores, increased overall performance and efficiency can be realized without increased power consumption.”
